Fall Fashion Trends

Given the ubiquity of street photography, it can now be easier to trend-spot outside fashion shows than inside. Case in point: the big and bold retro skirts so many women were wearing at the shows last month. You almost expected Carmel Snow to pull up in a Cadillac Brougham. Zanita Morgan, a model turned blogger…

Whisky And Oysters: Together At Last

Until recently – this week, in fact – we hadn’t considered the gastronomic possibilities that the pairing of oysters and whisky might bring. Sure, they’re each tasty, manly things in their own right – but that doesn’t mean that they’re as destined as say, bacon and chicken, or sex and cigarettes. Thanks to a group…

How To Get Justin Timberlake’s Haircut: The Neat Sweep

If summer 2013 was owned by the Scandinavian slick-back, the winter to come is about an altogether more comfortable look – the neat sweep, as seen recently on Justin Timberlake. Though a sharply shaved back and sides combined with a strictly combed, wet-look top can look boyishly neat (see Becks and Gosling for proof), it’s…

The value of late second-round picks

About a decade ago, low first-round picks started being treated with a new reverence. Recognized as a means of securing non-negotiably cheap labor due to the rookie contract scale that determined their salaries, their acquisition became a fashionable trend, punctuated emphatically by the Kevin Pritchard-eraPortland Trail Blazers, who feasted on their availability and stockpiled non-lottery…

10 Beers To Try Before You Die

Beer. Perhaps an odd thing to create a bucket list about. But with the number of craft beers continuing to mutiply and the tipple’s popularity soaring around the world, there are more must-tries than ever before. Here we ask Meantime Brewing’s Jack Stones – the UKs Youngest Beer Sommelier – for his pick of the…

HP Chromebook 11 review

I’m never offline anymore. I have Wi-Fi at home and at the office, nearly every hotel or coffee shop on the planet offers connectivity, and for the rare in-between times, my phone serves as a perfectly usable (if slightly awkward) mechanism for getting on the internet. The only time I can’t get online now is…

Florrie – Shot You Down

For all the think pieces, for all the open letters from pop-music doyennes, for all the twerk-induced pearl-clutching she’s inspired, the latest, brazen incarnation of Miley Cyrus isn’t all that different from her G-rated predecessor. In days of yore—or 2006, which is basically antiquity in zeitgeist terms—the cherished spawn of Billy Ray Cyrus found fame…
